  • Overview

    Did you know that some of the industry’s most talented and caring registered nurses are at DCI? Our nursing staff has helped DCI achieve the lowest mortality and hospitalization rates among large dialysis providers for the past 13 years in a row. We think our Nurses are pretty awesome; they make a difference in our patients' lives by helping them live longer and achieve a better quality of life.


    Our mission is “the care of the patient is our reason for existence.” What’s yours? 


    For REACH CKD patients and DCI ESRD patients, the ESCO Care Coordinator (RN) provides in-hospital, in-center and/or home coordination of care for the chronically ill, high-risk older adults hospitalized for common medical and surgical conditions.  In addition, the CC focuses on helping the patient and family caregivers develop the knowledge, skills and resources essential to prevent future decline and re-hospitalization. This CC will pay special attention to the patients desiring transplant, and help to coordinate the system through education, transplant referrals, coordinating appointments and following up with the patient and the family as needed.


    The following is a summary of what makes our team successful. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.
